12 of 12, March 2015 Edition

Remember when I actually used to write words on this blog instead of just post pictures? Maybe I've run out of things to say. Or ways to say them. But at least I have pictures.

My 39th "12 of 12". It's Thursday.

The 12 of 12 Challenge was created by Chad Darnell and picked up from a number of random bloggers who then linked back to him and vice versa. Chad stopped doing the 12 of 12 links in December of 2011, but passed the torch to someone else who sadly hasn't been keeping up with it. So as always, I'm giving my shout-out to Blobby of Blobby's Blog as he is the one who inspired me to do it. And still does.

All pictures were taken with my iPhone 5.

12:02 AM: Still awake. Kind of. On the couch. I've been in and out of consciousness all day after having a molar cut out. Luckily I've had "Keeping Up Appearances" to keep me... amused.

My 37th "12 of 12". It's Monday. Or it was. And this post almost didn't happen. Even though I remembered it was the 12th, I failed to take many pictures. Hence the crappy showing this month.

My 36th "12 of 12". It's Friday. For y'all. At least as far as the week-ending concept goes.

All pictures were taken with my iPhone 5. I upgraded! Kind of. Actually, I got the Husbear's hand-me-down when I upgraded him to an iPhone 6 a couple of weeks ago. I'm still holding out on upgrading to something current for some reason.
